Seen : : Rhys Mathewson "Rhys Classic"

There is something pretty cool about the Classic, there’s almost a romanticism to the whole event. But what do you expect it’s the classic right? The home of Auckland’s comedy scene. Rhys’ show is upstairs, in that tiny bar that isn't quite an open bar area. The perfectly cozy setting for a comfortably close up view of NZ’s best comedian (according to Rhys).

He told us that every comedian has three words that describe their persona, their set, their style, and their audience understands those three words and connects with them. If I had to give Rhys his three words they would be: Smart. Funny. Beardy. I think The best thing about this show, and Rhys in general is that the guy is f***ing intelligent. This isn't a, “I’ve been planning this show for a whole year!!” kind of funny it’s a “I have the balls to get up here and speak to all of you idiots for an hour!!” kind of funny.

Although he obviously invests a lot of time in his own creative process, something strikes me that this is the kind of guy I would love to get a beer with and just get super black-out drunk. The yarns would be endless. In this show Rhys takes societies highs and lows and somehow makes you feel okay with him making jokes about it, he is the writer, technician, and performer for his show, and he makes you comfortable with the audience as he spins yarn with people in the crowd, as you hear his built-for-radio voice fill the small brick laden room. Rhys' likability carries you through his ballsy risk taking punchy sense of humour, with charmingly intelligent wit and an sense of ease on stage, showing you why he deserved the Fred award last year. He will probably tell you about all the awards he has won, too.

Truly wonderful to be able to see such a talented comedian and general all around good dude.

There are a few shows left so get in quick, tickets are here.
